State of Origin 2

no lockyer again is huge as he is the soul of qld

adding prince to the team is huge for both teams, he has great attack and is one of the form players but he also has sus defence and expect him to be ran at all day by the nsw fowards.

I think nsw still has the better defence and can hold qld down as long as they stop prince from opening up the game, and stopping him will involve running at him over and over to wear him down and tbh i wouldnt be suprised to see karmichael hunt start the game and absorb the early battering.

folau was on the wrong wing last game and i dont know how he will go this game. Price is a huge inclusion and really lifted the team last year. Gidley is an awesome player too and really adds something to the nsw team and i feel they are a more cohesive unit, who will work towards a win while Qld will simply have an amazing player pull something from nothing.

FINAL COMMENT: while qld is a team of stars nsw is a star team and will work as a team for the win

nsw 24 qld 20

Yeah it's hard to be confident about the game as there have been so many changes and it's back at Suncorp. QLD always lift up there and Mason calling them "Nutbag Rednecks" wouldn't have helped.
Hodges is a big loss for QLD but Turner could also be a liability for NSW under the high ball. Price and Prince inclusion will lift the QLD'ers but Gidley and Simpson make NSW look better too.
It will be a close game. NSW 22 - 20.

What a terrible game! Qld 30 - 0
Turner can't get picked for game 3 he was a liability.
Refereeing was a sick joke. I thought Buderus was going to knock the fool out.
I also hate the fact that no one in the commentary team defends NSW and complains how bad they are getting screwed by the ref. Whenever QLD gets a dodgy call Vautin is screaming.
